Now that I think about it it doesn't seem right running all the time. Any recommendations?
manual states that if the lift
height is greater than ?? 1 meter?? you need to add an electric pump
to the fuel
system. My tank is in my keel
, the lift
height is more than the number in the manual, so the PO added an electric pump

I have determined that either the electric
or the mechanical pump will keep the engine
running, but I have decided to follow specs and have both a mechanical and electric fuel pump
running both at the same time.
I could someday remove the mechanical pump, but I like the idea that once it is running and don't need the starter anymore, my 3GM30
requires no electricity to run if I keep the mechanical pump. Theoretically not ideal since Yanmar
must think that would be hard on the pump, but for an electrical emergency
I'd be fine with that.
